About Cody

We are a family of 5 from Colorado. We travel the world, but make our best memories here in Wyoming. Now that our kids have gone to college and beyond, the home is less used. We are self-employed, an engineer and an attorney and both entrepreneurs. We separately hail from Oklahoma and from Massachusetts, so an unlikely pair.

Cody purchased this House in 2005

Why Cody chose Alcova

We bought this land (120 acres) and built this cabin because it is some of most beautiful land around a swim-able lake we could find, and we live over 4 hours away near Boulder, Colo. The home was designed to maximize family togetherness in an open main level with kitchen, dining, living and a huge deck, all with views of the lake and sculpted ravines nearby. If you like geology, you will find plenty to love here.

                                                          We've rented many homes but this ones is tops for beautiful home in an absolutely gorgeous location. Great fishing and scenery and very private, your neighbors are 2 miles away. Elegant touches in this custom home made our stay very special.

                                                          Fantastic place. Owner was very responsive. Would stay there again.

                                                          Beautiful place!

                                                          David P.

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay in Alcova. The view was amazing and the peace & quiet were much needed. The house is well equipped and just a short drive down to the marina. We rented a pontoon, paddle boards, & kayak at the reservoir and enjoyed the beach there as well. There is a restaurant & bar by the reservoir with good food and friendly staff. The first day we were there it was about 100 so the house was very warm since it doesn't have air conditioning. A couple of fans would have helped. But overall it was a great place to stay!

                                                          Wonderful view of lake and mountains. Very nice home with lots of space.

                                                          Anthony N.

                                                          House is clean and well equipped. Would come back and stay again.

                                                          Gordon L.

                                                          Beautiful secluded home with amazing view. Home is like new and has everything you need. 8 guys stayed to fish the north Platte river and was perfect for the group. Will book again next year if still available -home is for sale.

                                                          Relax with a view

                                                          If you want to get away from the crowd and the noise, have beautiful accommodations and a view of some the most gorgeous country anywhere this the place! My fishing friends and I spent five days here. We liked the huge deck overlooking Alcova Lake and the generous amount of floor space. "Two thumbs up".
